GUIDE ME, O THOU GREAT JEHOVAH 

1. Guide me, Thou great Jehovah, 
Pilgrim through this barren land; 
I am weak, but Thou art mighty; 
Hold me with Thy powerful hand; 
Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven, 
Feed me till I want no more, 

Feed me till I want no more. 

2. Open now the crystal fountain, 
Whence the healing stream doth flow; 
Let the fire and cloudy pillar 

Lead me all my journey through 
Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer, 
Be thou still my strength and shield, 
Be thou still my strength and shield. 

3. When I tread the verge of Jordan, 
Bid my anxious fears subside; 
Death of death, and hell's destruction, 
Land me safe on Canaan s side; 
Songs of praises, songs of praises 

I ivill ever give to Thee, 

I will ever give to Thee. A-men 



SAVANNAH STATE COLLEGE HYMN 

Let us give thanks and praise to Thee, 
To our Alma Mater, S.S.C. 
Thine honor, pride, and eminence, 
We raise in prayerful reverence. 

Guide us still from day to day, 
Be Thou mindful lest we lose our way; 
Help us know that life, short or long, 
Means unceasing work for weak and strong. 

REFRAIN 

Where Savannah meets the sea, 

Where grassy plains and palms abound, 

Where the flow'rs are gems of loveliness, 

There S.S.C. is found. 

We adore each beauteous scene and hall, 

Our all we pledge to Thee! 

In our hearts we'll build a shrine for Thee. 

We hail Thee, S.S.C. 

— J. Randolph Fisher 
Hillary Hatchett

ACADEMIC COSTUMES 

Modern academic dress has evolved from a type of apparel prescribed by English Medieval 
Universities to distinguish their schools from the lay person in dress at a time when everybody 
wore robes or gowns. When American colleges and universities desired to adopt some suitable 
system of academic apparel a half century ago it seemed best to agree on some definite system 
which all might follow. Accordingly, this attire has consisted of the cap, the gown, and the hood, 
the latter two now differing according to the degree the wearer has received. 

The modern cap, in academic dress has the same design for all degrees; black and square- 
shaped with a tassel hanging from the center. However, the color of the tassel usually differentiates 
the field of study for which the degree was granted, the gold tassel being worn by doctors or by 
presidents of colleges and universities; but it may be added that the black tassel is correct for 
all degrees. 

The gown, unlike the cap, differs appreciably in design according to the degree conferred 
on the wearer. The gown for the bachelor's degree has pointed sleeves. It is designed to be worn 
closed. The gown for the master's degree, worn open or closed has an oblong sleeve, open at the 
wrist, like the others. The sleeve base hangs down in the tradiiional manner. The rear part 
of its oblong shape is scpuare cut and the front part has an arc cut away. The doctor's gown, worn 
open or closed, has long sleeves faced with velvet; three bars of velvet are midway the sleeves. 
The trimmings of the doctor's gown may be black or the color associated with the field of study. 

The hood, while not an article of dress, is, however, the most distinctive feature of the aca- 
demic attire. It is a black, crow-shaped badge or adornment with an oval opening and worn down 
the back. It enables one to quickly determine not only the degree held by the wearer but also the 
college or university from which he is graduated. The colors lining the hood and the size and 
shape of the hood make this distinction. The bachelor's and master's hoods are three feet and 
three and a half feet in length, respectively; the doctor's hood is four feet in length and is made 
with a wide panel. Hoods may be worn for only those degrees actually held by the wearers. 

Members of the governing body of a college or university, and they only, whatever their 
degrees may be, are entitled to wear doctor's gowns (with black velvet), but their hoods may 
be only those of degrees actually held by the wearers or those especially prescribed for them 
by the institution. 

In some colleges and universities, it is customary for the president, chancellor, or chief officer 
to wear a costume similar to that worn by the head of a foreign university. 

The chief marshal may wear a specially designed costume approved by the institution. 

For all academic purposes, including trimmings of doctor's gowns, edging of hoods, and 
tassels of caps, the color associated with different subjects as prescribed by the revised American 
Intercollegiate Code is as follows: 

Agriculture Maise 

Arts, Letters, Humanities White 

Business Drab 

Economics Copper 

Education Light Blue 

Law Purple 

Library Science Lemon 

Music Pink 

Oratory — (Speech) Silver Gray 

Philosophy Dark Blue 

Physical Education Sage Green 

Science Golden Yellow 

Theology Scarlet 

At Savannah State College, the lining of the hood has an orange chevron on a blue back- 
ground to represent school colors. A faculty member wears the color of his alma mater.
